A cousin to our original Clencher, this beer is hopped throughout with Simcoe and Citra, Clencher is loaded with pine and citrus aromas and the body and alcohol to compliment itís assertive flavors.

From a grumbler thanks to a beer buddy at work. Orange-yellow color with a smallish head. Aroma is grassy hops with some booze. When cold, the first thing you notice is astringency and then pine/citrus hops, booze, a small malt backbone and then a citrus pith aftertaste. Once it warms, it improves and the astringency goes away. The ABV is more apparent in this one than in regular Clencher - perhaps thatís the astringency I picked up? Not bad, but not as good as regular Clencher. Worth a try, though, if youíre a BuckleDown fan. A bit of an update on the second glass - itís definitely got the citrus pithiness working, but if it just had a bit of the grapefruit / orange fruitiness, it would be spectacular.

Incredible beer. Really orange flavored and super hoot. Smells like week and is a dark orange draft. Had at Jerry's sandwiches.
